MSM’s Kpodzo Performs Life-Changing Reconstructive Surgery on Woman Badly Burned as a Baby
For more than 50 years, Gladys White has lived with the wounds from a tragic childhood accident. She was badly burned when she was just two months old, leaving her body with scars and wounds on her scalp. White has been unable to grow her own hair and has worn wigs to cover her injuries ever since she was a young child. But Morehouse School of Medicine Surgery professor and Morehouse Healthcare surgeon Dzifa Kpodzo, M.D., M.P.H., was able to change White’s life through reconstructive surgery.
Fox 5 Atlanta documented White’s story and the procedure. Click here to watch and read the full story on Fox 5 Atlanta's website.
